Two bands with birds in their names struck my fancy during the day today:
The first is from a Daytrotter session with Michigan three-piece Breathe Owl Breathe. My favorite track from the session is “Birdz,” but the whole thing is definitely worth listening to.
The second band is the Austin-based Wooden Birds, who has a free EP online. (If you like the EP, check out the full-length “Magnolia,” too.) I’m really diggin’ the bass lines in these songs.
